. they seem desperate to do that. plenty of liberals say, go over the cliff. big cuts in the pentagon and big tax hikes. the white house, from all indications that i've seen, they don't want that to happen. they are scared of what could happen to the markets. >> why aren't they dalg dealing with boehner? dana, be go ahead. jumpb in here. >> i think they won their negotiating power once boehner last week failed. as dana pushed out, the only thing that can get boehner is to do something. >> reporter: i think that you're right when i said that democrats don't think that the president will have much political damage. that does seem to be coming more from democrats here in congress than in the white house. democrats here in congress feel that it's a win-win for them politically. the one thing i will tell you very quickly, the pushback on this narrative that i heard from senate republican leader in the hallway. he said, do you remember who the speaker was during the hoover administration? i said, no. he said, that's my point. nobody will remember who the speaker was if ge into a recession but it's

the pentagon. what did she tell you? >> reporter: well, this really is a heart breaking case. you know, i just have to put it in perspective, a military installation, a child care facility, a stone's throw from where i am standing at the pentagon, it would take me just a few minutes to walk across the road to this child care operation. a mother who has now learned that her young toddler was one of the victims of this alleged child abuse decided to speak out about it. she wanted her face shielded, she wants her children's privacy protected. she still worries about retaliation against her husband, by the military, but she tells us a chilling tale. >> all along this first week when we were being sort of given piecemeal information, denied access to the videotapes, we were also being asked if we wanted to seek medical care for our child. so -- >> medical care for what? >> for what, obviously. we wanted to understand and see with our own eyes since that evidence was available. >> barbara, it took a long time for the information to come out. why? and what steps is the department taking, the defense

about her identity. let's get that from barbara starr at the pentagon. hey, barbara. what are we learning about this woman and this attack? >> reporter: well, victor, all we know so far really is what the afghans are saying. there was a press conference with senior afghan ministry spokesman and he held up a very interesting passport, he says the passport of this woman and it is iranian, that she is an iranian citizen who came to afghanistan and married an afghan man. he also said she had some fake identity documents, but this is certainly raising the prospect that the shooter was iranian. so far, however, no indication yet she's tied to the taliban, that she is officially tied to iran at this point, or to any terrorist groups. by all accounts she came to kabul, police headquarters had a weapon hidden under her clothing, removed it, said she was looking for someone to shoot and walked out behind this u.s. contractor. he's now been identified as 49-year-old joseph griffin of mansfield, georgia, working for dime corp. international, a major u.s. firm working in afghanistan to help t
